How to restrict access to repository directory?

How can I restrict write access to a repository directory (and its
files and directories) to specific users?

I tried using svnperms.py and and commit-access-control.pl from
the pre-commit hook, but I couldn't get any of them to work right.

For svnperms.py I configured svnperms.conf:
trunk/.* = *(add,remove,update)
trunk/restricted.* = admin(add,remove,update)

but with this configuration everyone had write accesses
to trunk/restricted.

For commit-access-control.pl I configured commit-access-control.cfg:
[Make everything read-only for all users]
match = .*
access = read-only

[Everyone has access to trunk]
match = ^trunk/.*
access = read-write

[Only admin has access to trunk/restricted]
match = ^trunk/restricted.*
access = read-write
users = admin

but again with this configuration everyone had write accesses to

Any help will be greatly appreciated,
